- Report of Fall Special Peace Philosophy Salon with Gavan McCormack
Thank you for sharing the special evening with Gavan McCormack on October 16, to those twenty-five or so adults and several children, at the fall special Peace Philosophy Salon, "Battle of Okinawa 2010: Japan-US Relations at a Crossroad." Gavan, based in Canberra, Australia, a dedicated scholar on Japan and East Asia the last five decades, author of numerous books including Client State: Japan in the American Embrace (2007), paid a special visit to Vancouver and Victoria, after giving a talk at Portland State University in Oregon. He gave two talks at the University of Victoria on October 18, and our Salon was the only event in Vancouver, so those of us who were there that night were very fortunate.
